Archived Rulemaking: Proposals for Pipeline Safety
This notice gives the disposition of 18 proposals for new or amended standards for the safety of gas or hazardous liquid pipelines put forth in a February 1987 advance notice of proposed rulemaking. Many of the proposals were affected by the Pipeline Safety Reauthorization Act of 1988 and are being handled in a manner consistent with that statute. A few proposals are the subject of technical studies OPS has in progress. The remaining proposals are withdrawn from further consideration because OPS has determined further rulemaking action is not justified.
